My family is experiencing Hurricane Sandy first hand, being 20 miles NW of center city Philadelphia...and even though the storm has been buffeting our region, we as a family have been prepared for disaster for years, having bought and stored the essentials such as food, water, candles, batteries, plywood, tarps, guns/ammo and a 7500 WATT 13 HP generator with 6.6 fuel tank with 30 gallons of extra gas and power strips. All three of our SUVs are also gassed up....and bug-out bags standing by !!
Uff up here in NH it's been like the 4th of July, transformers blowing up all over the place. I've seen 3 of them blow in the last hour or so, fortunately ours across the street is still working so we're a little bastion of light in an otherwise dark, wet, and windy world.
